UF Episode 03: Farewell Long Beach

In our third episode, we keep it short – a mini episode, if you will – because it’s our last night in our SoCal house! We are packing up the following morning and we share a few thoughts/emotions we are going through, how we are processing, and our gratefulness for friends and loved ones. It’s short but sweet – the last time we will be outside, in the garage, talking into microphones.

On this episode we don’t have our weekly “What embarrassing thing did you not know about a farm?!” segment BUT….the next time you hear from us, we will be on our farm in Virginia and there will be PLENTY of material, trust us.

(and if you have any questions or suggestions for future episodes, comment!)


Neat things we forgot to mention on the show (because it’s our last night in our house and we are tired/stressed) Sorry! :

One thought on “UF Episode 03: Farewell Long Beach

  1. I am so happy I found your podcast! My husband and I actually are the reverse of you guys. We moved from Virginia to California (about 7 years ago). All our family is still back in Va and we came to the bay area with no family and no friends. We didn’t have kids at the time but do now and have been in the same mindset for a while now. Not really discontentment, but more like you guys in that we just don’t feel like we are our best self, here. I think the hardest part was being away from family, even though we do get to see them once a year. Anyway, I just wanted to stop by and say that what you are doing is so refreshing and so brave! I just love that you are going all in with the farm, the lifestyle, and the knowledge that this is completely different from what you are used to. I pray that God will send you the most wonderful people for your new community of friends and that you guys just flourish there (as well as your farm!) It really is a great place to grow up. I’ll be following along with you guys and am happy to chime in anytime. I know nothing about farming, sadly, but if you need the perfect recipe for sweet tea-I’m your girl. Oh, and what we did as kids when catching lightning bugs was have your mason jar ready with lid and if you start right at dusk, when the sun is setting, they begin coming up from the grass and you can see them on blades of grass right before they take flight. They are usually slow at first and that is when you can catch them. It is hard to see them when they are blinking on and off but sometimes you can even get one or two off the grass before they fly (kind of cheating, i know) but yeah, i guess you kind of need to be out there in the grass to catch them. Cheers!
